In its third year, the Loyalty360 Customer Awards look to honor the industry leaders that are truly working to build stronger and deeper relationships with their customers by putting the customer first. As the association for customer loyalty, Loyalty360 recognizes those brands that go "above and beyond" in their dedication to their customers through this annual awards program.
Any company with a customer-centric strategy that focuses on one of the categories below is eligible to enter. Brands may submit themselves for the Loyalty360 Awards, or vendors and partners may submit on behalf of their brand clients.
Customer Centric Culture
Customer Engagement & Experience
Customer Feedback & Insights
Experience & Design Innovation
Loyalty & Advocacy
Finalists and Winners
After the initial judging round, four finalists will be named this summer for each of the individual awards categories. To complete the judging process, the finalists will be invited to the 2019 Loyalty360 Customer Expo, where each brand will make a short presentation of their entry to the audience.
By participating in the final judging round, each brand will give a short 10-15 minute presentation at Loyalty360’s Customer Expo during their category’s determined time slot. The four finalists in a given category will all present over the course of a 1-hour session (with a maximum of 15 minutes of speaking time each). Finalists can create a slide deck including video, screenshots, and insights mentioned in the initial entry for the final judging round. Conference attendees will serve as the final judging panel, as they can cast votes for the Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards in the award finalist presentations that they attend via the conference app. Following the presentations, the audience will vote, and Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be announced during an awards ceremony. All finalists will be recognized during the Loyalty360 Customer Awards ceremony and dinner, the evening of November 13th.
The Loyalty360 Customer Awards acknowledge leading brands and their exceptional customer-centric strategies. A panel of judges - comprised of Loyalty360 members – determines the finalists of each category, while attendees of the 2019 Loyalty360 Customer Expo will determine winners. Winning a Loyalty360 Customer Award demonstrates to your industry colleagues and customers that you are fiercely committed to your customers.
Award finalists will be invited to attend Loyalty360's Customer Expo, where they will take part in the final judging round by giving a short presentation on their entry. Finalists are invited to participate in other conference events as well, giving the brand representative(s) access to conference sessions and networking events.
Award finalists will also receive press coverage on Loyalty360.org through press releases and award finalist feature articles, will receive a Loyalty360 Customer Awards trophy, and will receive a custom set of Loyalty360 Customer award winner logos for their website, social media channels, digital and print marketing materials.
The Loyalty360 Customer Awards are also a great internal recognition for hard working teams and a chance to celebrate all that has been accomplished.
